CHANGE OF ADDRESS
If you are moving/changing your address, please notify the Parish Office so we can keep our records up-to-date. If you are changing your phone number because you are using a cellular phone and/or forgoing your land phone, the Parish Office would also like that information. Please click here or call us at 703-221-4044, ext. 222. Thank you.
There are now separate numbers for the Parish Office (703-221-4044) or (703-291-7285), School Office (703-221-3868), and Religious Education Office (703-221-3127). If a parishioner wishes to reach someone in those offices, we ask that they please call the designated number. This is a change from the previous arrangement where you would be able to dial an extension after reaching the general number of the parish. We had to make this change to correct problems we were having with the former system.
